Light honey combed center drenched in Oliver's rich Milk Chocolate. An item unique to Western New York. A melt in your mouth experience!
My parents lived in Leroy while my dad was student teaching back in the 1950s. He would make a special trip to get my mom some chocolate every so often. (Could have been when I was in the dog house but we’ll never know that for sure. LOL) Oliver’s Candy has been a staple each holiday growing up and for me when I was raising my girls. I have since out of state but stop in each time I’m back home. The sponge candy is so creamy and delicious, it’s well worth a visit!
I prefer the dark chocolate sponge candy. A deep chocolate flavor as smooth as silk. The way I determine a fine chocolate is if it doesn't irritate the back of my throat. Cheap crappy chocolate candy always irritates the back of my throat. Oliver's does not. The Milk chocolate sponge candy is great but do try the dark chocolate version. For some reason the dark chocolate version is not listed on the web site.
I have always been a fan of Oliver's Sponge Candy. The sponge center is drenched in a thick layer of chocolate. The chocolate is rich and creamy and perhaps the best you will ever taste. My mom sent me some as a surprise and when I saw the box I was ecstatic!! Even with our temperatures hovering in the mid 90's and the humidity above 80%, the candy arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. So looking forward to enjoying each piece, but I must confess, I ate three pieces as soon as the box was opened!!
I am from Batavia (moved to FL in 1980) and I bought some candy for my co-workers. I never had sponge candy before. I heard nothing but good reviews from my co-workers about how awesome this candy was. I will definitely be buying it again.
I love Oliver's sponge candy - no other sponge candy even compares! The milk chocolate is so smooth and delicious, and the sponge candy is always just the right consistency, never gummy or hard like some other places! This is the only place I order from, since I moved out of state years ago.
This is one of my favorite Candies!!! I grew up in Attica and would ride my bike to Batavia. Our Easter Candy was ALL Oliver's chocolates, ALWAYS. I have friends stop and get me Sponge Candy if they are in the vicinity. The best treat ever!!
I was born and raised in Attica and this is a staple to my growing up. I am sad that I am not closer to be able to enjoy it all the time! But its awesome I can mail order it!!!!
I grew up in Batavia, NY. My mom used to stop by Olivers and get us some sponge candy. I never forgot it. I dont live there anymore. I order it for family now for Christmas. Everyone always says to me it is the best candy they have ever had. Thanks Olivers!
We make an annual pilgrimage to western NY and that includes a trip to Oliver's and a purchase of sponge candy. Milk chocolate or dark chocolate. It is all excellent!
I grew up in Western NY, and one of the things that I look forward to when come back to the US is this sponge candy! Oliver's sponge candy is the best I've ever tasted (and I'm well traveled!) :) Try it yourself, you'll see.
